Ripe and generous, with excellent intensity to melon, yellow apple and marshmallow tones, highlighted by nicely integrated lemon tanginess. Drink now.

Crisp and delicately structured, with a clean, brisk mouthfeel, this wine packs a flavor punch. Essence of lemony lime, sweet green grass, vanilla and rich honey lead to a long, fruity, spicy finish. One of the better SB's lately.

Marked by a sweet-and-sour edge, with very good concentration to a candied quince, melon, grapefruit and honey character, accented by nicely integrated vanilla-scented oak, giving it a soft mouthfeel. Drink now.

The crisp, mineral-dominated Sauvignon Blanc displays a light straw color in addition to attractive aromas of figs, melons, orange peel, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with loads of flavor, it is a delicious, food-friendly dry white to drink over the next year.

Intense, with tangy apple, lemon-lime, grass and fig flavors that carry through the finish. Drink now.

Pale color. Reticent, metallic nose hints at vitamin C and a waxy, semillon-like quality. Supple and moderately concentrated, with hints of baby aspirin and lemon. A bit blowzy and lacking in grip. Not bad, but not up to the quality of the best vintages of this bottling.

Winemaker's Notes:

This enticing Sauvignon Blanc offers a beautiful combination of freshness and complexity. The aromas are rich and layered with elements of pineapple, guava, peach and lemon zest. On the palate, the entry is crisp and inviting with good acidity supporting flavors of lemon meringue, grapefruit, pear and flint. The addition of Sémillon accentuates the wine’s tropical notes with subtle oak adding nuance and dimension.
